To Live Is Christ

I love everything about Jamie Oliver. I love his food, I love his books, I love his shows and I love his mission. Food Revolution is Jamie Oliver's mission of changing the way we eat. He wants more people to eat less processed food, and to get back to the kitchen to cook fresh food for ourselves and family. This, I am sure you'll agree with me is also the mission and love of all food bloggers here to cook and enjoy healthy,fresh good food with their loved ones at home.

To teach people to save and cook healthily, Jamie Oliver also set up a home cooking skill course for people who want to learn to cook great food. I have found an amazing recipe there and have shared this with so many of my friends. All of them love it too and have also shared with their friends.

This is another recipe from the website which I think everyone should try. Easy Flatbread is so fast and easy to do. There is hardly any kneading, and absolutely no proofing at all! Best of all, you can make and freeze them ready to eat anytime. I made this to go with hummus dip and beef tajine.

Easy Flatbreads
Jamie's home cooking skills
Makes 12

500g self-raising flour, plus a little extra for dusting
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
500g natural yoghurt


  • Put dough in a food processor but you could do it by hand.
  • Out all of the flatbread ingredients into your food processor and pulse until you have a dough.
  • If the dough's a little wet still, you may need to add another sprinkling of flour.
  • Tip the dough out onto your work surface and dust with a little flour
  • Knead the dough for a minute or so to bring it together.
  • Divide the dough into about 12 equal-sized pieces.

  • Dust a rolling pin with flour then roll the pieces of dough out into side.plate -sized rounds.
  • Stack them between small sheets of greaseproof paper next to the hob ready to cook.
  • Put a griddle pan on a high heat to get nice and hot.

  • Once it's really hot, cook each flatbread for a couple of minutes per side, until slightly puffy and lightly charred - you'll need to do this in batches.
Serve as they are as a side or with something lovely for dunking like home-made pesto or guacamole. You can freeze any leftover flatbreads, simply defrost thoroughly and warm through in the oven wrapped in foil or lightly re-toast them in a pan before tucking in.
These flatbreads are so good that I made them twice. The first time with Hummus Dip and the second time with beef tajine.

  1. Hi Lian,

    I like Jamie Oliver too but my relatives in Singapore didn't like him as much as I do... They said that the way he is handling the food is not very graceful with his hands... LOL!

    Like these non-yeasted flat bread.... Very Jamie Oliver style. Fast, easy and delicious! Made with hands??? LOL!
